Trailer For The Cyberpunk Short Film 'Reboot'

Check Out The Trailer For The Cyberpunk Short Film ‘Reboot’ via Geeks of Doom.

Set within a dystopian world that is a collision between technology and humanity, “Reboot” touches upon many of the current social and political concerns that arise from becoming more and more intertwined with the virtual. In contemporary Los Angeles, a young female hacker (Stat) awakens from unconsciousness to find an iPhone glued to her hand and a mysterious countdown ticking away on the display. Suffering from head trauma, and with little recollection of who she is or what is happening, Stat races against time to figure out what the code means, and what unknown event the pending zero-hour will bring.

It’s a short film, and I could probably freeze frame and analyse the “comptuer code” and pick out how it’s completely wrong to have a dir command on a macbook which as you know is a unix based operating system, but hey, I’m a sucker for anything cyberpunk :)

The film’s website is here.
